Pros

a good focus on games of today rather than pure technical (mathematical) prowess / the games of tomorrow

1 agrees

10-20% faster than the GTX 480

1 agrees

available at launch

1 agrees

encourages pricing wars with competition (has prompted AMD to supply retailers with more high end 5970s at the same price point + additional MIR incentives)

1 agrees

improved cooler design better suited to cool the GF110 GPU - quieter than the noisey GTX 480, now in line with the competition

1 agrees

tweaked and refined engineering of the GF100 core (now GF110) - improved power consumption and performance over the previous generation GTX 480

Cons

Very pricy compared to the performance level it gives. offers only a mediocre 15% performance edge over the GTX 570 for 44% the price.

2 agree

2 x DVI and 1 x mini-HDMI - lacks connectivity options compared to the 3 and 6-display Eyefinity enabled competition

1 agrees

high price point puts the card beyond most consumers reach - not your everyday mainstream graphics card, enthusiasts only
